The 8th Annual Conference for the Florida Council for History Education is taking place July 26-27 at venues throughout Sarasota.

Its Sip & Scholarship Social on July 26 at Fogartyville features a keynote from historian Dr. Rolando Herts, who will share narratives of historical events through an informal and interactive lecture over a glass of wine or local brew and light bites!

Herts is the director of The Delta Center and executive director of the Mississippi Delta National Heritage Area, a congressionally designated partnership with the National Park Service.

He is also a part of The International Delta Blues Project, a 5- to 10-year vision for the cultural and economic revitalization of the Mississippi Delta region aimed at increasing opportunities for cross-disciplinary academic study of the Blues, as well as to stimulate the region’s creative economy. The project features three components: an International Conference on the Blues; a Blues Studies program that includes a minor in Blues Studies and an online summer certificate program known as the International Blues Scholars Program; and a Blues Leadership Incubator focused on economic opportunity related to Blues education and tourism in the Mississippi Delta region. The Project is funded by a generous three-year grant from the Robert M. Hearin Support Foundation.
